    And the last of my favorite weekend shows, Doo Wop Stop with Cool Bobby B is on. He's been on the air since 1957 :bluecool: He must be older than Bruce Morrow.


    From Sirius XM:
    Cool Bobby B's Doo-Wop StopSunday, October 27 ET 9:00 pm – 12:00 am Bobby B spins the street corner with the a cappella harmony known as doo-wop. You'll hear the essential sounds of early rock and roll on the hippest show on the radio.

    Oldies Party Channel 776 is taking over 50's on 5 this weekend, so I guess there will be no Cool Bobby B Sunday night.

    Don't the oldies parties usually break up before 9:00 PM anyways?

    Are there no DJs on '50s on 5 anymore?

    I've been listening here & there lately, & I have yet to hear a DJ.

    Haven't heard the Do Wop show yet.

    Well if that has happened that wouldn't be fitting to the era.

    The Do Wop show is on Sunday night. I rarely miss it.

    I'll try and catch it.

    I grew up on oldies. My mom would listen to KRTH (K-Earth 101 in Los Angeles). The DJs were always so much part of the show.

    I miss Wolfman Jack.

    All of the other DJ's have been gone on 5 for several months. There are no DJ's on 9 either.

    That's bare bones.

    I know I've heard Downtown Julie Brown on '90s.

    She's the only one on 9. The rest were canned the same time they dropped the DJ's on 5.

    IndustrialH "So much music .... so little time..."

    .... was reading this interesting site about NexGen Digital Automation Software - which includes the line " Everyone saves time and does better radio with NexGen Digital. Your talent can put together a live-sounding, four-hour shift in 30 minutes. Use VoiceTRAC features like fade up/down of audio, automatic ducking and fully adjustable timelines."

    So why not do this for the '50's and some of the other channels. A four hour work day would produce 16 hours of broadcast audio
    , and if they were already using it then they are running cheap.
